We're on WJEC english and we have to write a realistic story based on these titles- 'happy days' 'the unexpected' or 'the new arrival'

it has to be realistic though, so do you have any ideas on what I could write about?

Write about something you know about - perhaps base it off of an experience you've had? Can you think of anything you've seen or done which fits one of those three titles?

No I'm rubbish thinking of ideas! I was thinking of doing a plot twist like someone could be "kidnapped" and but they're taken to their birthday party or something? But it sounds rubbish and I need a good grade because my target is an A do you have any ideas?

It's against the policy of this forum to do your homework for you, and coming up the idea is a big part of this. Your kidnapped idea could perhaps work, from a first person perspective - describing a surprise party as someone who thinks they're being kidnapped and having the big reveal towards the end isn't a bad idea at all. Besides, with these things it's all about how you write, not what you write about.

What guidance has your teacher given you?

I just wondered whether you had any vague ideas haha not to do it for me. So it's not a bad idea? Not much guidance apart from it can't be horror or supernatural it has to be realistic

I don't think it's a bad idea. If you like the idea, then run with it. As I said, if it's well written the subject matter is largely irrelevant.

Thank you for your help, I'm just so worried about not getting a good grade because I can't think of a subject matter I'll probably end up changing it if my teacher thinks it's not "realistic" enough
